If you follow me on instagram, you may know that I've been to Sagada during the Papal visit. It was a different adventure which I truly enjoyed and thanked God... for such a wonderful experience and making us safe all through out the trip and the activities. Part of my adventures would always be food trip making sure to try local dishes. And of course also bringing home some for pasalubong. So this is Part 1 of my Sagada delicacies post and let's start it with the famous Lemon Pie from Lemon House.
This is so popular at Sagada that when we went to Lemon House, it was full house and with a very long queue. When we tried to order for us to bring home for pasalubong, we need to order it in advance for us to be able to get it after 2 days! Look how in demand are these Lemon Pies. But good thing we were able to get our orders the day after.
It looks like egg pie on the first look. It also smelled very good! As in! Though I didn't smell that much the lemon scent. The size is the same with the regular pies.
Now let's look at the layers.
It has actually 3 layers - crust, lemon pie and cover layer
The top most layer is like or the same of that brazo de mercedez. Sweet but not too sweet, feels and taste somehow like that of brazo de mercedez.
What I think of the product:
- The crust is still hard in a way that it doesn't break
- Though the crust is hard it's very bitable
- Can really taste the lemon but it's not too sour
- It's not pure lemon only but a great blend of their ingredients
- Very lemon not over of the lemon
- Sour in taste but not super sour
I like it! This is something different. It's worth the long queue.
Make sure to try this when you go to Sagada!
